Adriano José Habed is a PhD candidate in political philosophy and gender studies at the University of Verona and Utrecht University. His PhD research is part of the INVITE doctoral programme, co-financed by the European Union within the framework of the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions Programme and by Regione Veneto. Adriano’s project focuses on the idea of a queer critique, delving into its roots in Michel Foucault’s thought, exploring the different accounts of it provided by Judith Butler and Eve K. Sedgwick, and analyzing the discontents expressed by the recent “postcritical” tendencies within queer theories. Before starting his doctoral studies, Adriano obtained his Bachelor degree in philosophy from the University of Turin and his Research Master degree in philosophical anthropology from Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen. He worked at Utrecht University for the European Association of Gender Research, Education and Documentation (ATGENDER) and at the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam for the International Association of Labour History Institutions (IALHI).
